El Museo Sorolla
Based on multiple recommendations, I decided to visit the Museo Sorolla instead of the Prado. It is a decision I don’t regret. The museum was in the house where he lived. Sorolla is now one of my favorite painters. I was very touched by how many of his paintings were of his wife and children.
NOTE: All artwork in this post is Sorolla’s.
He painted and designed pottery.
He was assisting for a photo shoot that was going on in the garden.
Springtime is finally really here.
One of his self-portraits.
I loved his use of light in this one.
Sorolla is most famous for his paintings.
He was also a sculptor.
His paint box.
Sorolla died before finishing this painting.
I had to take a break in the garden. There were so many paintings and I wanted to truly enjoy all of them.
His numerous paintings and sketches of his wife showed how much he loved her and enjoyed looking at her (which means a lot from an artist).
Yet another portrait of his wife.
